2 Chinese eggplants, sliced lengthwise into thin, 3-inch pieces
1 egg, beaten
1 cup, Panko bread crumbs
Salt and pepper to taste
Olive oil for frying
Ketchup for the dip
1/2 cup, chopped green onions for garnish
Heat Olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Season eggplant pieces with salt and pepper to taste. Dip each eggplant piece into the egg batter before coating both sides with bread crumbs. Fry breaded eggplant pieces until the breading turns golden brown on either side. Remove from heat and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain excess oil. To serve, transfer to a plate, garnish with green onions and ketchup or your favorite dip.
